What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT code - sometimes called a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transfer money internationally you almost always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks, financial institutions and money transfer services identify where to send money on a global scale. You can think of a SWIFT/BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to the wrong ZIP code means it might go missing, the same applies for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

A SWIFT/BIC code is either 8 or 11 characters in length:

AAAA BB CC DDD
